Physics professor at University of Arizona

Tutor Information


I am a physics professor at the University of Arizona. I found out during the pandemic that I really like online teaching, and I realized that I sincerely miss all the one-on-one tutoring that I used to do at earlier stages in my career. Putting the two together (online tutoring) has been really rewarding for me. Please get in touch if you think I can help you out. I have been teaching and tutoring math and physics for more than 15 years. I am a popular instructor here at the University of Arizona, and I am also known for my public lectures on gravitational waves and astrophysics. I can tutor any subject in college-level math or physics, and many graduate-level topics as well. Examples include calculus, linear algebra, classical mechanics, quantum mechanics, electromagnetism, thermodynamics, and statistical mechanics. I especially enjoy teaching special and general relativity, as the latter is my research area. I hold a B.S. from Yale University and a Ph.D. from the University of Chicago. I began my tutoring career as an undergraduate at Yale, providing physics help to minority and first-generation students as part of a program run by the college. Since then, I have taught math and physics to all kinds of students at all different levels. I love working individually with students of all stripes, and am truly excited about all the online opportunities available on this platform.
